    Abstract: The fast variations in the source voltage can affect the performance of the loads such as (a) semiconductor fabrication plants (b) paper mills (c) food processing plants and (d) automotive assembly plants. The common disturbances in the source voltages are the voltage sags or voltage swells this can be due to (i) disturbances arising in the transmi... Show More

    Abstract: This work presents a method to enhance the distribution network for both test and real systems by adding small hydro power plants (SHPPS). The voltage sensitivity index (VSI) was used to find the optimal locations to add small hydro power plants (SHPPS). The study has been applied to the system at unity and 0.9 lagging power factor. The test system... Show More
